PREFACE.

“Teach the Bible from the Bible itself."-Congress of Church School Managers,

Leeds, 1877.

This book gives the authorised version of the First and Second

Books of Kings from the Death of Solomon, arranged in Lessons, with Analyses, Notes, and Summaries. No other books

need be used with it, for it at once takes the place of the Bible, without superseding it, and also the handbooks now in such common use by students. It is so arranged that there is a lesson to

learn and a lesson to read upon nearly every subject, and the sum

maries at the heads of the lessons may with advantage be revised

alone, just before examination.

Important texts to be committed to memory are printed in

larger type.

OLD TESTAMENT HISTORY,

FROM THE DEATH OF SOLOMON TO THE END OF

THE SECOND BOOK OF KINGS.

LESSON 1.—The FIRST AND Second BOOKS OF KINGS are united in one in the ancient Hebrew copies. Supposed to have been written by several of the prophets, they were then said to have been compiled as a continuous history by Ezra. Embracing a period of 427 years, they give the account of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah from the Death of David to the Captivity.
